- $40 for a two-hour flying trapeze class (up to $80 value, including registration fee)
Instructors teach basic knee hangs, catches, and trapeze skills as up to 10 students strapped into safety belts acclimate themselves to the flying trapeze. Students who do have experience may also learn how to build their velocity for higher, more complex tricks as well as how to fall into the arms of the safety net with grace. Between turns, instructors will share tips on how to improve. Check out the class schedule for available times and dates.
Trapeze School New York Beantown
Trapeze School New York Beantown's instructors marry exercise and art as they teach trapeze calisthenics to aerial athletes of all skill levels, winning praise and coverage from publications such as the New York Times, Huffington Post, Boston Herald, and Wall Street Journal. Their skilled instructors team up with students to safely defy gravity during aerial classes, party packages, and kids' summer youth programming, which span airborne disciplines such as flying trapeze and silks to nonairborne skills such as juggling.
The school fuels communication within the high-flying community through a digital discussion group and special events. Additionally, TSNY's nonprofit community-outreach branch donates flying-trapeze instruction to underprivileged people and supports the arts and sciences through fundraising events.
